In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

Badingham is a scattered village, close to the A1120.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, in 1844 the parish had two beerhouses in addition to the White Horse and Bowling Green, so there's at least one more we need to identify.

Badingham was recorded in Domesday as "Badincham" and appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Baddingham". At one time, Badingham races were a regular feature on a makeshift racetrack opposite the White Horse. Finds of Iron Age and Roman pottery south of the church suggest the possible existence of an old settlement there. The Grade 1 listed church contains an exquisite Seven Sacraments font. Unusually, the aisle is on a slope.

Although the village sign bears the date 2012, it was actually installed in September 2013. Sadly, since its installation it has already been allowed to deteriorate and by 2019 was just a lump of rust.
